Australian Ninja Warrior Season 1 – Semi-Finalist & Season 2
I travel up to the central coast for ninja training events at the Obstacle Course Racing School in Tuggerah. This is one of my favourite ninja gyms to train at and my progress on the salmon ladder is slowly getting better each time i go.
Check out my training video.
My mission to play at all the cool ninja training gyms across Australia continues.
Here is a little edit from base camp when I travelled down to south Australia.
Ninja Warrior is just starting to explode in Australia and I am now training as a Ninja at all the Obstacle gyms and even travelling around Australia Competing in Ninja Competitions.
After traveling around the world chasing and living my Olympic Dream I am now The Traveling Yogi.
During my training I started to introduce some yoga in to my program and this was just the begining of my Yoga Journey.
This year I completed my Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training at the Byron Yoga Centre.
The Traveling Yogi came from meeting so many people that can’t make it to a yoga studio but would love the chance to get on a mat and practice in the comfort of their own home.
I am available for privates, groups with your friends and family and even at your work place.
Classes can be tailored to your needs and wants including Yoga Flow, Meditation and Pranayama/Breathing.
To book a session or find out more information about prices and times please email -email@example.com

Steph Magiros is hoping to become the first Australian to go back-to-back in winter and then summer Olympics.
Gymnast-turned-snowboarder Steph Magiros will take a step towards becoming the first Australian to compete in back-to-back summer and Winter Olympics when she contests the vault final at the national gymnastics championships in Melbourne on Saturday.
A semi-finalist in the snowboard halfpipe at the Sochi Winter Olympics in 2014, Magiros has her eyes set on the Rio Games next year.
While two Australians have done the summer-winter double (Jana Pittman and Paul Narracott), the pair had eight to 10 years between Games.
The feat is also a rarity worldwide, the arduous nature of competing in very different disciplines limiting it to a small group of international athletes.
“With my gymnastics it is kind of a second chance after semi-retiring seven years ago,” Magiros told AAP.
“I am already ahead in my career than I ever was before so it is all a positive right now.”
The 24-year-old over-rotated her landings in qualifying in Melbourne and enjoyed some luck in squeezing through to the eight-woman final.
But Magiros felt with more time under her belt she would be pushing towards the top of the field.
“I still have a little more difficulty to add to my vaults,” she said.
“It’s not at that Olympics level just yet. But I have the potential in me to get it up there. The only thing now is timing – being the Olympics next year I am cut on time but my whole snowboarding career was cut on time as well and that was a success.”
Involved in gymnastics since the age of three, Magiros competed until her teens before trying snowboarding on a school trip at the age of 16.
Six years later she became a Winter Olympian.
After making the team she immediately decided to put gymnastics back on the agenda, registering for the national program just three days before the annual cut-off.
To send a team of five women’s gymnasts to Brazil, Australia first needs a top eight finish at the world championships in Glasgow in October.
While Magiros said she was still getting her head around the complexities of claiming an individual position in 2016 she understands there are a number of opportunities to build results that will get her to Rio.
“Knowing that no Australian has made two Olympic Games in a row, that has definitely been my fire to come back into it and give it a crack and see how far I can take my gymnastics again,” she said.
